Welcome to Librarium Online!
Me and a few friends have got a great idea to finish our summer. We are thinking of running a narrative campaign called "The path to the everchosen" were we take control of Archoan from the begining of him being a scholar to burning down the library then setting off to become the everchosen. The campaign will conclude with a legendary battle with Archaon leading a horde of Deamons, Beastmen and Warriors against a combined army of HE, Dwarvs and Empire.
Archoan will start with the rules for an exalted and If Archoan susscfully completes a challenge then he gains either a buff or a special unit for the Legendary battle and vica versa if he lsoes. Some of the battles will have a reguular WHFB scenario and other will take place in a skirmish/mordheim style for fluff reasons. Here our ideas so far.
Game 1. Skirmish Archaon and 10 Diclples against 20 empire miltia
Setting: Archaon Library after he had read the book.
Aim: To burn down the libaray (3 points on the board were fire must be placed)
Game 2:First Unholdy Quest: Archaon In Naggroth
Setting Archaon Assult on a DE fortress to gain mark of the everchosen.
WIN:Gain the Swords of Chaos unit
LOSE: Legendary Battle Repater Bolt throwers can be taken by forces of order
Game 3: Armour of Morkar
Battle against Undead
Setting: Khermi? Outside the tomb of Morkar.
Special Rules: Undead do not suffer from crumbling . Must fight Morkar (Morkar will have same profile and rules of chaos lord leads a unit of undead chaos warriors with halberds. Morkar lv4 Necromancer Armour grants him a 2+ Ar Save and 4+ward, Morkar is immune to killing blow, Sword of Morslib ( Grants a +2 stregth)
Win: Archaon Gains armour of Morkar
Lose: Unit of Tomb Guard at Legendary battle
Game 4: Eye of the Dragon
Archaon Fights a dragon a small 1000 point game is played before Archoan has to fight dragon against a monstorus horde. (Special rule if Arhaon is killed by dragon Archaon will be able to make one final attack while inside the dragon dragon will have -1 T)
Game 5teed of the Apoclypse
Battle against deamons of Chaos led by
Agrammon the Deamon Prince
(Agrammon is an ancient deamon prince foul and disgusting he know all spells from the lore of shadow and Beasts)
Agrammons meangire: Agrammon may take fiends and Flesh Houds as core.
(BUff Archaon gains his deamonic Steed)
Game 6layer of Kings
We are unsure how to play this game maybe against a Shaggoth with Stats similar to Kholek Suneater
Game 7: The Dark Corantion
This will be the final legendary battle as the forces of order atttempt to stop Archaon becoming the Everchaosen.
what do you guys think got any tips or suggestions for some of the battles? anything we have missed fluff wise?
what I really need help with is the buffs or addtions of units?
we are playing the first skirmish game this sunday and maybe the second battle as well time permitting also hoping to hammer out a campain schdule.

Sounds kinda awsome, i bet there would go alot of tweaking and planning into getting the campaign fun and balanced tho.
But the general idear is really cool - and i would love to play it if you ever worked out some more precise details.
Great Ideas !! Please tell us how it goes from week to week...
5000 pts of WoC, 5000 pts of Orcs and now 3000 pts of Ogres...What was I thinking ????
I love the idea, i bet you are going to have a blast with it!
Are you going to make the surroundings as realistic as possible? Maybe make them yourselves? (dont know how hc you will work on this) Might be an idea to post a couple of pics of how you set it all up so we can drool over it
Sweet Idea i wanna do it ! I have always wanted to run a narrative campaign but my friends aren't that helpful/dont have as many models. But, Ok I will help you with some of the questions you asked.
First the 3rd mission should be against "savage half-humans whose pallid flesh had never seen the touch of sun of moon" (from the WoC book) Maybe they could be either lizardmen (only skinks and saurus though) or a ton of crypt ghouls. The paragraph describing the armor describes that he has a sea faring warriors, maybe all marauders, a few warriors. Also the Morkar profile you had seems too powerful. going by the book it seems like maybe the stats of a chaos lord wearing the armour of morkar.
I don't think you need to play a scenario for the 6th one. In the book archaon just kills that Khorne dude and takes the sword.
The final battle as described in the fluff takes place against dwarfs and ogres but that would mean the mountains of mourn and chaos dwarfs. You could always to that and then the final final battle as the siege of middenheim(?) But it depends on the armies that you have.
As for the buffs and what not. I think that archaon should automatically get the equipment, some of the stuff he does would be dang near impossible to to recreate, even with the items! The adding/subtracting units seems like the best bet. Even making up new units/better rules for existing units.
Well hope that helps if you have more ideas post and the campaign can become better!
Repainting Orks not sure how many points yet
Warriors of Chaos shelved until further notice
I think for the First game you should use a Warrior Priest or an Empire Captain rather than Archaon. He had not trod the path to Warriordom then and was still just human, an angry human but a human none the less.
The second game I'd make him an Exalted Champion and have him fight a load of Crypt Ghouls. Have a Vampire (big Ghoul) for the main big bad boss guy at the end. When he's done this he gains the blessing and his Lord Status.
Regarding the buff I have though of each battle enables you to include a specail unit in the army. for example if I win the the first battle againt the dark eleves I gain a unit of swords of chaos these cost 18points per model like stantard have same profile as standard chaos warrriors but are stubborn if within 6 inches of Archaon representing there loyalty. Also if Archoan wins in Naggroth and gains the mark he is able to choose which mark that he wants before each mission. If he wins teh battle agaisnt Aragamon then Archaon may summon one unit of deamons per game.
Archaon in the first game (the skirmish one) will have the rules of a chosen champion with 2 wounds. Then next and exalted. Lord for Morkar. Then gaining the other marks in the next (Immune to psych 2nd level wizard, -1 to hit, + stength) and the crown of domination if you beat the dragon.
